Frustrated Charlie Stayt tells MP ‘keep concentrated’ as BBC row turns tense

BBC Breakfast host Charlie Stayt took a subtle dig at MP Chris Philp after he joined the presenter on the early morning news show.

Charlie hosted alongside co-star Naga Munchetty and led the interview with the politician.

Stayt brought up some major issues but Philp gave very vague answers which clearly frustrated the BBC journalist and let to a slight outburst.

Philp continued to speak over the presenter as Charlie interrupted him in an attempt to steer the conversation and took a subtle swipe at the MP.

Charlie tried to "bring him back" to the original topic, repeatedly said "no" when the politician tried to talk and told him that the BBC show has a "limited amount of time".

Philp continued to avoid the questions and Charlie grew visibly frustrated.

Stayt then exclaimed: "No. What I am going to do, I'm going to keep you concentrated, if I may, on what you just said."

Charlie continued on and asked the MP for "exact figures," but was forced to press the guest for the information.

The topic then turned to Philp's "new role" as policing minister, which he has been in for "roughly nine or ten days".
